Periodontal Treatment & Prevention in Norwood

Do you know the dangers of untreated gum disease? Many patients aren’t aware of the acute health risks associated with periodontal disease (gum disease). Gum disease occurs when tarter and plaque buildup spreads beneath your gum line. Countless studies have shown a direct link between gum disease and several life threatening medical conditions including: heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, cancer, and premature birth. The bacteria from untreated periodontal disease can spread to other parts of the body, wreaking havoc on your good health. Since periodontal disease often progresses without any painful symptoms, it can cause severe damage without being noticed until it’s too late. The good news is that we can treat periodontal disease, and even reverse it in some cases. But you shouldn’t wait for gum disease to attack you or your family. You can prevent it by making sure your family is screened for periodontal disease at least twice a year. Central Dental Associates can provide the protection you need to stay healthy and disease free. Central Dental Associates is trusted by families throughout Norwood, MA, Walpole, Westwood, Medfield, Dedham, and the surrounding communities.

However, there are many other factors which may contribute to the development of gingivitis including: diabetes, use of tobacco products, aging, genetic predisposition, systemic diseases and conditions, stress, inadequate nutrition, puberty, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, substance abuse, HIV infection, and taking certain prescription medications.
